The ESP Original Series are guitars made by hand by our experienced master luthiers who work in the ESP Custom Shop in Tokyo, Japan. Each guitar is made one at a time, with a level of detail and craftsmanship that’s unsurpassed in the musical instrument industry. With the ESP Arrow Rusty Iron, you get a guitar that will set you apart from the rest of the world. It has a textured finish that looks like oxidized metal, as if your guitar was an ancient relic sculpted in a different era. But the ESP Arrow is a completely modern machine, with neck-thru-body construction at 25.5″ scale, a set of active Seymour Duncan Blackout pickups, and top-tier components like a Floyd Rose Original bridge and Gotoh locking tuners. It offers an alder body, a super-fast three-piece maple neck, and an ebony fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets. Includes a hardshell case.
SEYMOUR DUNCAN BLACKOUTS (AHB-1S)
This is a neckbridge set of our original high-output active Blackouts humbuckers. The perfect choice for metal players looking for warm complex chording and singing leads, the original Blackouts neck practically cries out for two-handed shred and thick rhythm playing. Its extended frequency response and organic feel make this a great humbucker for those who demand both responsiveness and the true tonal character of their guitar to shine through.The original Blackouts bridge humbucker delivers all of the power and full bodied punch that todays metal players demand from an active pickup. You get the high output signal level of an active pickup, with more of an organic feel and open tonal response that allows the character of your guitar to come through. The treble and bass response is extended beyond the range of traditional active pickups, and has been carefully balanced with a slightly scooped midrange for the perfect crunch. This pickup excels at screaming pinched harmonics and hyper-speed riffage with responsive dynamics across the entire fretboard.
